a truck drives up a hill with a 15 degree incline. if the truck has a constant speed of 22 m/s, what are the horizontal and vertical components of the trucks velocity?

  • Physics -

    horizontal velocity = 22sin(15)

    vertical velocity = 22cos(15)

  • Physics -

    thank you so so so so much !

    Kayla: MrPhysics erred, and got the forces reversed.
    Horizontal is the cosine function
    Vertical is the sine function.
